Farida is the very talented food blogger at Farida's Azerbaijani Cookbook. To me she is the online expert on Azerbaijani and Turkish food. It is amazing how many cuisines you discover online and being the foodie that I am I was super excited when I found Farida's site.

It is a delight to browse through her site. Everything looks so delicious and yummy ! I have tried her Pirojki - potato pies except mine were shapeless thanks to my zero talent there, but thanks to following her recipe they tasty just fine ! These are perfect for cold winters evenings when you wanna munch on something warm. If you are into baking try her Zebra cake ( which girl doesn't like her animal print ;)), a sure party winner. I am big fan of yogurt and eggplant so her Creamy Yogurt soup and Eggplant rolls are next on my radar.

Farida is currently working on her own cook book . Here's wishing her all the success in the world !

Lets see what Farida's makeup philosophies are :

What is your one "go to" makeup item?

Hmm, good question. I have to admit it does change from time to time. I have a tendency to switch from eye liner to lipstick or lip gloss and vice versa. I think currently my one go to makeup item is lipstick. I use light colors, nothing too catchy as I like my makeup to be natural looking and simple.

What beauty products do you have in purse right now?

I couldn't answer this question off the top of my head so I had to check what’s inside my purse.I rarely carry beauty products in my purse but to my huge surprise I found a Loreal Sugar Plum lipstick in it.

What "beauty food" is a must for you?

I wish I could give you a long list of foods I eat believing in their beatification power. But alas, I am not too beauty conscious. Although I try to eat as healthy as possible (for example, I trim fat off the chicken) I never think about what I should eat for beauty purposes. However, I am conscious about the creams, lotions and things of this nature I use on my face. For example, although rarely, I use only clinically tested and fragrance free facial creams. I think they feed my face pretty well

What is your beauty / make up regiment before hosting a fabulous dinner party?

I rarely use makeup on a daily basis. For fabulous parties I do wear makeup trying to still keep it simple. I apply dark-brown eyeliner, concealer( Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer) for the veins under my eyes (I have an almost translucent skin under my eyes), just a little eyeshadow and lipstick and I am good to go. Everything in small amounts.

What would you classify your make up regime as ?

It is partially A and partially B – just a lip gloss and a big smile - it’s my go to look.

a) I'm just a lip gloss, kohl girl

b) Freshly scrubbed face and a big smile- is my go to look!

c) I'm a full on glam girl - LOVE putting on my lashes

Thank you Farida !
